The Erotic Film Society, in association with Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop, presents An Evening with Amory Peart as part of Manchester Pride Fringe.
Join the for an evening of candid conversation and outrageous video in partnership with the Erotic Film Society, as Manchester welcomes multi-award-winning director Amory Peart. His distinctive gay, trans and hetero adult films have consistently challenged simplistic definitions of gender and sexuality, putting him in the forefront of queer film-making in Britain for more than two decades.
His current specialism is sharply observed, XXX parodies of mainstream feature films and television, aimed at straight audiences. Retaining his customary edge, output such as retro sci-fi The Bionic MILF; vampire epic Fang Bang; a tribute to much-loved prime minister Aggie Snatcher in The Iron Lady Garden; and most recently Friends with Benefits Street – all gleefully subvert Hollywood clichés and porno expectations alike.
Amory will talk about his richly varied career with Julian Marsh of the Erotic Film Society. This event is strictly over 18 only and proof of age may be requested.
Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop, curated by Bren O’Callaghan, is supported by Arts Council England and Manchester Pride Fringe.
There will be copies of Maurice Vellekoop’s Pin-Ups graphic ‘beefcake’ book on sale on the day (£15), his latest comic The Adventures of Gloria Badcock (£3) and two exclusive, North of England inspired limited edition Pin-Ups prints at £35 each. Once gone, they’re gone!
